A special gift from a reader...
thank you Nancy Seelow!

I've been wanting to thank someone for doing something real special for me and now's the time!

A blog reader, Nancy Seelow from Williamsburg, Missouri sent me an amazing card in the mail last week. Nancy is a regular reader but is like many of you reading this right now who are "silent readers". You are among those who never comment here on the blog but nevertheless you are here everyday from San Francisco to Singapore. I have no idea why some of you keep reading but others of you tell me privately why you do and drop into my email box every once in a while and others of you actually into my regular mailbox, with a phone call, or in the case of two people -- in person!

Last week I received this card from Nancy. I was blown away when I opened it. She obviously purchased this card from the store however she "remade" it very creatively to personalize it just for me. The front of the original card design said, "Go for it! Shout out loud!" but she made a matching slogan that she taped across the front that says, "BREAKTHROUGH!" and then when you open it up it plays the actual song, "Shout, kick your heels up and shout!" Then, she took the photo of the plant from my blog post and printed it out and taped it on the left hand side with the slogan "New Beginnings" and then also changed the original card words to say, "or any other devil' stompin word that comes to mind. Happy rejoicing! She enclosed a lovely letter.

Nancy spent an obvious amount of time and creativity on this to celebrate and commemorate my breakthrough last month and I appreciate it so much.

Nancy is a blog reader who tirelessly prayed and fasted for me the past few months until the breakthrough came and I can't say enough about how much it meant. She was faithful to privately give me a word in due season several times. Thank you, Nancy for listening to Jesus when he woke you up on my behalf and for staying up for hours at a time to pray for me . Thank you for standing with me til' the victory came. I love you.

Folks, this is just another reason why I love blog world!
